Playing is how children enter a subject and make it their own. This guiding principal will be at the heart of each week’s content. The overall theme for our camp is learning through play. Each week campers will be tinkering and playing within various themes. The inclusion of interactive tablets and app-based technology on a weekly basis will allow campers to apply newly learned skills in fun and innovative ways. Campers who register for the full summer will get to keep the interactive tablet as their own. You don’t want to miss these unique learning opportunities!

The camp operates on a positive house-based model where each participant will become part of a caring and supportive group of peers all driven to achieve positive goals and bond under a common theme. Weekly team building experiences will create powerful connections to help promote positive self-esteem and participation. Daily classes in physical education, technology, art, and theatre will develop gross and fine motor skills in conjunction with the weekly academic themes and lessons.

Weekly focus/content of instructional blocks: 
Select the one-week experience (or as many as you like) that you think your child would enjoy or send them for all seven weeks. Full summer campers will receive an app-based coding mini-robot to keep at the end of the summer. 

Please note… There will be a one-week break during the Fourth of July holiday week.
